  8. 8. Where these savings are coming from… Averages to 63% savings across these End User Areas Area Typical Savings Rationale Help desk 50% Removes the need for password resets. Simplified environment reduces complexity and support calls. Moves, adds, and changes typically do not require IT support. Network engineering and support 50% All traffic is over HTTPS. No need. for complex firewall configuration and administration. Desk-side PC support 90% Desk-side support, other than for hardware failures, is eliminated. Security and user administration 75% Administration is policy-based and authorized users can be allowed to administer their own entitlements (rule-based, delegated admin). Software distribution staff 50% Packaging happens once for servers and desktops. Software distribution is gradually replaced w/SW publishing. Desktop engineering 75% The need for complex desktop engineering is eliminated though the combination of wrapping applications and moving to a central model. Security engineering 50% Security is simplified through the introduction of a standard solution for encryption, single sign on and authentication.
